We will begin our exploration with the paintings of Giotto and Masaccio who provided the foundation for the Italian Renaissance in the early 14th and 15th centuries. The sculpture of Donatello and the painting of Botticelli will illustrate the rebirth of classical images. The beauty of the High Renaissance will be seen in the paintings and sculptures of Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo.
